Penrith City Council has launched a new app that will make finding a parking spot in the Penrith CBD easier.

The ParkPenrith app will provide real time information on parking availability in Penrith

“Penrith Council will be the first Council to have their own free parking app of this kind. This is an exciting time for our vibrant city,” said Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler.

“The ParkPenrith app will make finding a parking spot a lot easier for residents and visitors to our City.

“It is important people can move about our City to access businesses, services and attractions quickly and easily.”

The ParkPenrith app uses and displays data from the in-ground sensors that were installed in early 2019.

“We need to make the city easy to access and to get around and smarter parking systems will help us do that,” Cr Fowler said.

“It will also help business by improving turnover in short-stay spaces to allow more customers access to local businesses and services.”

The ParkPenrith app can be downloaded from the app store or play store and is compatible with both Apple and Android mobile devices.
